I just like to see all the names that people pick for their babies. Who picked the name? What is it and why did you pick it? My daughter's name is Syriana Nova. I picked her name and it was from a movie. I heard it and fall in love with it. She was born Oct. 26.

Some lovely names on this thread.

My boys are Joshua James and Zachary Joseph.

If I have another boy he would be either Alexander or Oliver. And if I have a girl she would be Gabriella (although I have loads of girls names I like and could probably easily name 10!) Other girls names on my possible list were: Grace, Cerys, Isabella, Lola, and Carys.

My boys weren't named after anybody in particular. Although Joseph (my second childs middle name) is the same as his Dad's middle name and his granddads name... but tbh that's coincidence. I just picked the names I liked best.

my husband and I came up with a little contest type thing. If he were a boy I got pick the name, girl my husband got to pick it. I came up with the name Jacksun Dale. After my husbands father who had pasted away when he was little. (jack) and then (sun) is for my family. I had an uncle who pasted away sunny lee in a terrible car accident. he was only 35. and my grandfather goes by sunny from his father calling him sunny boy. Dale is named from my father. Its his middle name, and our sons. We like names that mean a lot to us as a family. it was a good "idea" to bring the two families together.

Annabelle Grace, My husband and I both agreed that we did not want a top 100 name and also one that could be shortened. We have popular names (James and Rachel) and would constantly hear our names and turn and the person wasnt talking to us. I am big on the names that have to do with religion (Grace, Faith, Hope, Charity) so I had those down as possible middle names... anyway we looked in a baby name book for the first name and I had a list (he did not see and Annabelle was on it) I was on him for weeks to look at the book. He called me one morning from work and just said how about Annabelle Grace and that was it so I say he named her.

She was born on May 16, 2010. (She waited for our special day.)

We named our son William Allen. we had the name picked for about to years before he was even conceived. we chose william because we liked it and its a good strong name and Allen because thats his dads middle name. We named our daughter Adryane Jane. Had alot of troube picking her name as we wanted something that was a little different without being to out there and we chose Jane because that is my mother in laws middle name. i love both names that we chose and think that they suit the kids perfectly

I chose simple first names for both my girls, and middle names that carried some kind of tribute to women in my family. My oldest is Jane Katharina Hazel. Katharina was my mother's middle name, and Hazel was my grandmother's first name, both of whom have passed away. My husband and I both really liked Jane, and it just felt right. My second daughter's name is Claire Isabelle Lynn. Claire was from my favorite novel, and we saw it on a baby name website and loved it. I was pushing for Isabelle as a first name, but my husband didn't feel it. Lynn is my mother in law's middle name.

My daughter is Lilian Ivy. My favorite flower is the lily and Ivy just sounded too perfect to pass up. I chose it with one L because it looked weird to me typed out with two.

I named my 2 year old son Ja'Corey Dominick. I had a guy that i went to school with named Corey and he was like my best friend. My Son Jayden pass away but i made sure his name fit him Jayden Johnny "John John". For the baby on the way girl Ja'Niyah Yasmine-Lee or Ja'Mia Loren. Boy Ja'Lijah Zayden or Joaquin.

My son is Easton Michael. Michael is both my bf's and bf's dad's middle name but it took a long time to pick the first name. I've always wanted to name a boy Roman, after my dad but my bf wasn't sold on it. And the name he wanted was Jordan, but there was no way in hell I was naming my son Jordan Michael! All I kept thinking was 'Michael Jordan' Haha. So we spent an entire afternoon going through a book of 10,000 baby names and listed each name we both really liked, which was only 16 out of thousands! We hung that list on the fridge and over the next couple weeks, after seeing the names constantly, took turns crossing off the ones that weren't sticking in our hearts. Easton was at the very top for both of us all along but we had fun with our list by emailing it to family members for votes and posting at work and having all our friends vote on it. Not that it wouldve changed our minds in the end but it just so happened that Easton was the top voted name among our friends and family too, so that was fun!

My 2 year old is Zoey Elizabeth (Elizabeth is my mom's middle name) and I'm thinking about Zaylie Rae (Rae is my middle name) for the little one I'm pregnant with now. I just like the names and decided to do the Z thing because it's not very common.

I have three daughter Emily Katherine, Abby MaryJo and Rylea Pauleanna. All of their middle names are family members or combinations of family members names. We just liked the first names and seem to have developed Rhyming girl names, lol. p.s. Rylea is pronounced Riley.

My daughter is Kali Marie. Also pronounced like Callie. I got so much grief about the spelling. Glad to know My little girl won't be alone.

I loved the name Calli but did not want to use a name that started with the letter C. Our first daughter was named Chloe Mallory but she was still born. I love both my girls names.

1st (boy): Jayden Michael Jack
Fell in love with Jayden after seeing it in an american baby Magazine. Michael for my uncle, Jack is his biological father's middle name.
2nd (boy): Colton Jacob
Just liked the name colton. Jacob is his biological father's middle name.
3rd (Girl): Emmalee Margarette Grace
We wanted a name that was neither common nor wierd so we chose Emily and made the spelling uncommon. Margarette was her Great Grandmother's middle name, who passed away just weeks before her birth. We also loved the name Grace, and it was supposed to be her only middle name until her great grandmother passed and we added margarette as a tribute to the family.

My son's name is Gerald Anthony Wallace. I name him Gerald after my grandmother Geraldine Hancock on my mom's side and gave him Anthony from another member of mom's side of the family, which his name was David Anthony and Gerald got the Wallace part from his biological father, Ricky Wallace.
My daughter Kyra Janelle Morris, got her name, just because I was playing around with a lot of names on paper until I came up with her first name and fell in love with it and I gave her her middle name from my aunt, which is my mom's sister, Keri Janelle Davis. Gerald was born on May 28, 2003 and Kyra born on March 26, 2007.

My daughter, born 7-3-05, is Kendra Michele. Her father picked the 1st name cause we couldn't agree. I wanted Alyssa Michele but he didn't like Alyssa. Michele after a childhood friend of mine who I always told I would name my daughter after her.

My son, born 3-26-09, is Holden Nicholas. I obviously don't like real common names for first names. We thought of Gavin, but I just couldn't picture holding a baby named Gavin. Holden is NOT from A Catcher in the Rye. I never read that book until after my son was born cause people kept asking if it was from that book. Stupid book, don't read it. I found it on the movie "The Good Girl" with Jen Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal and Jake's character was Holden. I thought it was an uncommon, strong name. My husband agreed and now he's Holden. Nicholas is after my husbands seargent in the Army. Nick Lombard. I also have special people in my life named Nick, so it can work for both of us.

I love the name Gabriel, but I have a cat named Gabriel (white, longhaired with blue eyes) he made me think of a gorgeous angel. Now, I regret naming him that cause I want to use it as a kid name and can't:(

My sons name is Tristan Charles Theodore. He was born 2 months early and we didn't have a first name pcked. It was between Caden and Tristan. The nurses at the NICU were excited to help but every time I said Caden they would think i said aiden and tell me how popular it was so we went with Tristan. Charles is after my Dad because he was the 3rd and only had daughters. So I always knew it would be the middle name if I ever had a boy. And Theodore is after my husbands Father who passed away right after I got pregnant. We did't even get to tell him. T was born April 24, 08.
My daughter is Aubrey Lynn. I heard Aubrey on a TV show a few years ago and actually hated it because you could never tell if they were saying audrey. They nevr pick simple names for TV like Lauren ya know. well all of a sudden when I found out I was havig a girl I loved it said it to my hubby and he was just like yea I like it. End of convo it was easy. And Lynn is after his sister who help raise him. Aubrey was just born July 20th, 10.

Hudson Uen - initials of HUG! Who could resist that.
Lily Eve - initials of LEG. We loved this and Hudson would have been called this if he was a girl.
Willow Ann - initials of WAG. Ann is my middle name and it has been a tradition for second born girls for many a generation in our family.
Baxter Ares (pronounces Airs) - initials of BAG. I loved the name. Hubby wasn't too keen on it but he really is a Baxter. The middle name is the god of war.

My son's name is Gabriel Richard and he was born on Jan 26, 2009. We picked Richard as a middle name for two reasons, after my husband's dad who died when my hubby was 13 and after my hubby who's name is Richard. We picked Gabriel because it was not a common name and it means strong man of God, which is what we hope anf pray for for him.

Our first born is a girl, her first name is Abrianna(pronounced aubriona) her name is spelled the Italian way and her middle name is Monet after the artist, we chose an Italian first name because my husband and I are both Italian and we chose her middle name because my husband is very artistic. I said the name and he fell in love with it..she was born April 20, 2005 and our second born is a boy, we named him Vincent Aiden. His first name is of course Italian, but we also chose it because of the artist Vincent Van Gogh and we chose Aiden becaue I have Irish on my side of the family he was born July 10, 2007. It also worked out well because Monet is another form of Monica which is my mother in laws name and Aiden is a form of Daniel which is my dad's name and we didn't even know that at the time!

She was born September 28th 2007.
